Almond Joy Energy Bars

It is easy to recreate the flavour of popular Almond Joys in this simple paleo snack recipe. Almonds, chocolate, and coconut flakes form the main ingredients. Once everything is blended together the mixture is pressed into a square and chilled to form bars. They are easy to pack along and eat on the go – a mini dessert in your bag.

Ingredients

1/2 cup almonds
1/3 cup unsweetened coconut flakes
2 oz. dark chocolate
3 tbsp almond butter
1 tbsp maple syrup
1/2 tsp vanilla extract
1/4 tsp salt
1-3 tsp water

Instructions

1. Combine the almonds, coconut flakes, and chocolate in a food processor and pulse to finely chop. Add in the almond butter, maple syrup, vanilla, and salt. Pulse a few more times to combine. Drizzle in the water a little at a time until the mixture starts to clump together.

2. Transfer the mixture to a piece of wax paper or plastic wrap. Press it into an even square and chill, wrapped, for at least one hour. Cut into the desired size of bars, wrapping each bar in plastic wrap to store in the fridge.
